line. first, compared to chuck hagel for defense secretary, will president obama's nomination of john brennan as defense secretary be met with less controversy? you might not be so sure. because of his support for harsh interrogations. cnn national security analyst peter bergen points out he was the architect of the drone policy which has been controversial in places like pakistan and yemen. that's likely to be a topic of conversation in the brennan hearing. they estimate that american drones have killed as many as 171 civilians in yeppen since 2002. the real story is in pakistan where nearly 1,000 people have been killed, civilians, since 2004 by american drones. >> secretary of state hillary clinton is back at work after being hospitalized for three days. the staff welcomed her back to work today with fitting gifts. a football helmet, a jersey with the the 112, whichsomebleizes the number of countries she's visited as secretary of state. this doctor of georgetown university hospital tells "outfront" it can be regulated with medication. >>> and an "outfront" update on a story we have

. par for the course, huh, tracie? >> absolutely. they are used to big fights on capitol hill. john brennan going up for cia director could prove to be that. he was considered for this position back in 2008 but pulled his own name because of questions back then about whether or not he backed cia interrogation tactics. this time around it could be more about those drone attacks targeted towards some of our enemies. even more so than that, chuck hagel up for secretary of defense could face a really rocky time not only with republicans but with democrats as well. he's a republican but some republicans as they put it he left the party a long time ago. they have issues with the stance he's taken on israel, on iran and also on defense cuts overseeing a pentagon budget that he may be willing himself to back those cuts the president has asked for. lots of questions. tough questions they have planned for both. we don't know yet when those confirmation hearings will happen. >> okay, tracie potts on capitol hill. thank you for the report. >>> 5:41 now. the fbi's evidence response team is headi
